Detail

Matthew Hall discovered that many callers of the asn1_get_length_der function did not check the result against the overall buffer length before processing it further. This could result in out-of-bounds memory accesses and application crashes. Applications using GNUTLS are exposed to this issue.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2.7-1+squeeze+1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.12-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libtasn1-3 packages.

Description: The asn1_get_length_der function in decoding.c in GNU Libtasn1 before 2.12, as used in GnuTLS before 3.0.16 and other products, does not properly handle certain large length values, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted ASN.1 structure.
